It does not take long for representatives of the Hollywood film industry to create any project on the scandals that took place just a month ago. In late May, the biggest corruption scandal in FIFA history erupted when the Swiss authorities arrested several high-ranking FIFA officials on bribery charges. Due to the scandal, the newly elected FIFA President Joseph Blatter announced on June 2, 2015 his decision to resign.

Taking up the public outcry about this, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon decided to produce a film on this topic. They intend to film the book "House of Deception" / " Houses of Deceit " authorship Ken Bensinger. The film, as reported by Western media, will feature a former member of the FIFA Executive Committee Chuck Blazer, known by the nickname “Mister ten percent " for generous sponsorship and successful broadcast rights deals.

The director of the film was appointed Gavin O'Connor, and took over the work on the script Anthony Tambakis.

Note that Ken Bensinger has a Pulitzer Prize nomination in his track record, and the journalist published his first article about Blazer in 2014. She formed the basis of the book, which is now being prepared for publication.
